With the month of August comes an opportunity to experience worship services crafted by clergy within our congregation who are filling in for Dr. Chalker while he takes his well-deserved vacation. This Sunday, The Rev. Sharon Seyfarth Garner offers some different approaches to worship and presents her message entitled, Find Your Mountain, Fill Your Swim Floaties.
Brian Misch sings and plays on guitar, “Open the Eyes of My Heart,” with additional music provided by Nathan Motta and Lavert Stuart.
This Sunday, we may be visited by participants in and spectators of the Gay Games underway in Cleveland – yet another opportunity to welcome members of the gay community to our family of faith.
During the next week of construction, worship in our Great Hall will be accessible in only two ways. For all persons without mobility issues, please enter through the lower E. 107th entrance and take the steps down to the Great Hall. The stairways and the east doors closest to MLK Drive are closed during this period, due to construction. Those with mobility challenges will need to enter through the handicap door off the parking lot and take the elevator down to the Great Hall level. And those who park on (either side of) MLK will need to use the handicap entrance and elevator as well.
This month, children are invited to attend worship with their families; activity packets will be available. Jr. and Sr. Youth join us in worship as well.
Photos of the chancel reconstruction in the Sanctuary will continue to be displayed on the TV monitor in the Great Hall.
Also, if you haven’t yet brought in school supplies for teachers to distribute as needed to the students in our nearby, newly-adopted Cleveland school, Mary B. Martin Elementary, please consider doing so this Sunday. School starts August 13, so your timely gift of supplies would be greatly appreciated. Call the church office for specific suggestions.
Be open to God’s message for you as you join our growing family of faith in worship this Sunday. And consider bringing someone with you.
Church parking for visitors and the mobility-challenged is available in our north lot. Parking is also available in the Judson lot across from the church, and on Parklane, E. 107th, both sides of MLK Drive and in the Cleveland Library lot south on E. 107th.
